Episode 509 – Mixer Nick Squids Squillante, Social Doesn’t Monetize, And A New Optical Storage Format

Nick Squids Squillante

My guest this week is mixing and mastering engineer Nick Squids Squillante, who’s recent immersive mixes include “Rescue Me” by Dirty Heads, which went to Number 1 on the Billboard Alternative charts, and “Psycho” by Asking Alexandria, which also scored a spot at Number 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. He’s also done other immersive mixes for artists such as Tommy Lee, Papa Roach and Bad Wolves to name a few.

Nick began his career working at Electric Lady Studios with 7-time Grammy-award-winning mixer Michael Brauer. During his time at the studio, Nick worked on records for Bon Jovi, Frank Ocean, Mumford & Sons, and Elle King, to name a few. Since then, Nick has been working with both major label and independent artists, amassing millions of streams on Spotify, Apple Music, and other major platforms. As a result, Nick has worked on records that have charted in the top 10 on iTunes and even more recently was considered for Grammy nomination.

During the interview we spoke about his biggest learning moment with the great Michael Brauer, his favorite plugins, how he got into immersive mixing, creating memorable moments in a mix, and much more.

I spoke with Nick from his studio in Brooklyn. 

On the intro I looked at how social media doesn’t monetize fans, and the new huge optical storage format.
